From Italy: Bielsa has concerns about possible Leeds transfer target

Leeds United fans in the Transfer Tavern will want to see who Marcelo Bielsa will bring to the side this summer as they look to try and compete for a Premier League spot.

The Chilean was named as the new head coach last week, and the locals will be expecting him to make a number of additions over the course of the transfer window to improve his side.

It is believed he is looking at a number of areas of the squad to make stronger, with the frontline appearing to be one of his main priorities. The club have been linked with a number of attackers, yet there seems to have been one name rumoured for the last six months.

Jerry Mbakogu is expected to complete a move to Elland Road from Carpi, yet reports from TV Qui in Italy are claiming that the supposed transfer may not happen.

And that’s because it is understood that Bielsa has doubts about the striker, in news which is likely to intrigue our resident Leeds fans what with it little over six weeks until they kick their 2018/19 Championship campaign off against Stoke City.

Landlord’s Verdict: The Leeds fans in the Tavern will be wondering what on earth is going on in regards to the deal for the Nigeria-born striker, as they had been told the club agreed to a deal to sign him back in January.

The locals know that they need to bring a striker to Elland Road to help improve their chances of playing Premier League football, and will need to wait and see who Bielsa decides to bring in.

Leeds fans… what do you make of the news? Let us know!
